  • One hell of a dinner party in Hong Kong.

  • There are times not to act like a tourist in Taiwan.

  • Buddhist or mouth-piece? Or perhaps a different kind of reincarnation?

  • Interesting look at 6 possible alternative futures for North Korea and thoughts on North Korea's threat and leadership.

  • South Korea's troops are fully deployed in Iraq, and some other Koreans are there too; but the deployment is turning Koreans into vampires...

  • A good look at what's holding Japan back and what can be done about it. Also a look at the shifting balance in Japan-US relations.

  • Kevin says Koreans are the anti-Scots.

  • Miscellany

  • When you've finished touring Asia, try touring the world by blogs.

  • Michael Schumacher's a pussy.

  • There is such a thing as a free lunch, for wannabe bloggers at least. Make hay out of Adri's passing.

  • Jeff has an important product for men's hygiene.
  • NOTE: I'm toying with the idea of setting up an email notification list for when AbB is updated. Please let me know if you'd be interested in such notifications.

    Just wanted to make you aware of The White Peril, a blog written by an American living in Japan. Pretty good stuff, although I can't say I always agree with him.

    I've got White Peril listed already; not everything makes every edition.
